Get a diagnosis: Left sided numbness could be as simple as referred numbness from myofascial pain (which is cause by muscle imbalances), or even carpal tunnel in the left wrist, but could also be as serious as nerve damage from your fracture, or even a stroke. I'd recommend seeing a physiatrist or neurologist to get a clear diagnosis. Then you can target an appropriate treatment. ...Read more

A cut is a cut: Tetanus is possible when a cut on the skin is contaminated by tetanus spores that are all around, predominantly in soils. It doesn't matter what made the cut if the exposure comes after the skin is open. The rusty nail is the classic source because it is on the ground to begin with when people step on it. It serves as a reminder to update your protection. If > 10 yrs get the shot. ...Read more

What should I do if I have a cut on my leg half a finger long from about eight hours ago, now it is itchy and has sort of a pink outline. Does this mean it is infected?

What should I do if I have a cut on my leg half a finger long from about eight hours ago, now it is itchy and has sort of a pink outline. Does this mean it is infected?

Not necessarily: It could still be the acute local skin reaction from the cut. I would keep a close eye on it and monitor the pink outline to see if it is spreading, getting more red, becoming more tender and/or warm to touch. If those occur then it might be infected and you'll need to see your doctor for treatment. In the meantime, put antibacterial ointment on it and keep it clean. ...Read more

Myoclonic jerks: When we dream, our body becomes paralyzed so we don't act out our dreams and play "superman" off the 3rd story balcony. However, sometimes there can be small muscle fasciculations that get through and there is slight movement. Furthermore, there can be small stimuli to muscle groups causing involuntary jerks of legs or other large muscle groups. ...Read more

I could speculate that as a mom with a youngster you may not be sleeping as well now. This can lead to muscle pain especially in people with fibromyalgia.

For three months off and on having pain in my left arm and leg when lay certain way also numbing in fingers as well when I move it feels better?

Ulnar/Sciatic nerve: Depending on the way you sleep, you may be pressing your elbow or gluteal region against something hard (for instance, on the mattress / boxspring, or against your head or body). Pressure on these areas can cause an ulnar neuropathy or sciatica, respectively. I would suggest easy fixes first: try a different mattress, sleep in a different position, and discuss your symptoms with your doctor. ...Read more
